5 Of "The Bachelor" 2020 Contestants Are From Texas & Have So Much Natural Texan Spirit
Texan hails again!
The moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived! The contestants for Pilot Pete's The Bachelor season have been confirmed, and unsurprisingly 5 of them are all from Texas.
When Hannah Brown said "bye-bye" to 28-year-old pilot Peter Weber on the last season of The Bachelorette, it's safe to say we were all shocked. Out of all the remaining contestants, Weber seemed like the most genuine of the bunch.
Now Weber gets to run the show when The Bachelor premieres in January, and the 30 single and ready to mingle ladies are ready for their 5 seconds of fame.
Many are blonde and many are pageant queens, but more importantly 5 are true Texans! Here's the 5 vying for Pilot Pete's love.
Hometown: San Antonio
The former Miss USA Texas is very involved in local school and literacy programs, after being diagnosed with dyslexia in high school. Benavidez loves spending time with her friends out in the Texas sun and seeing different parts of the state.
A little Insta scrolling will also lead to her boyfriend whom she may have broken up with right before the show started filming. Umm, do we smell drama? "Something we've never had happen before on the history of the show happens to Alayah," Chris Harrison teased for the reveal.
If there's anyone who has Texas spirit, it's the Astro cheerleaders. And Mullins just happens to be on of them. Mullins is not only an Astros cheerleader, but also a realtor.
Her favorite past time is feeding turtles on her back porch and indulging in Vampire Facials. Hey now, no glam-shaming here!
Hometown: Fort Worth
A true country girl, Elkins has been on a ranch since she was 13. She even went to TCU and obtained a B.S. in Ranch Management.
When she's not in the fields, she spends time walking on runways. The cattle rancher is a triple threat with her part-time gigs of modeling and singing. And according to her Insta, she is friends with former contestant Jasmine Goode. Hopefully Goode gave her some tips to get far.
Harrison revealed that Kanu has "very expressive eyes, facial reactions," and you'll instantly see that through her photos. The 23-year-old doesn't even need to smile and you'll know exactly what vibe she is going for.
Maybe that'll win Peter's heart when the healthcare coordinator steps out of the limo. When she's not taking fire Insta shots, Kanu is bar hopping around Dallas.
Nguyen might just have the best entrance of the season. Harrison revealed that she'll come "out of the limo, firing Vietnamese at Peter." Take that how you want!
The 25-year-old is very much the happiest of the bunch, flashing a big smile throughout her Instagram. She can be found always sipping a glass of wine or hot cup of joe. Unsurprisingly, Nguyen is a client relations manager.
